- NFL Pro Bowl Gear Tips: If you’re anywhere else around the world, hit up NFL.com and get your NFL Pro Bowl gear early this week, they do sell out quickly and if you want Mediums or smalls in the Jerseys, get on there now, they don’t make many of those so they go even quicker. If you’re going to be on Oahu this week, here’s what I recommend: Buy your gear quick and early on in the week. Check out the Pop Up Shops along Kalakaua or the special quick strike stores at the Hilton Hawaiian Village. If you miss out on these places, next best place is Saturday morning at Ohana Day at Aloha Stadium. Then make sure you hit up the NFL Pro Bowl All-Star Block Party on Saturday Night in Waikiki. There’s a great Pop-Up store at the Diamond Head end of Waikiki and a few various Booths along Kalakaua Ave. BUY early in the evening-Gear is LIMITED. If you’re looking for the real deal player authentic jerseys, don’t even think twice, if you see one buy it on the spot. They don’t make too many of those and they are hard to find even with these tips. And lastly if you’re just looking for some Pro Bowl stuff or presents for your friends, wait until the Monday after the Pro Bowl and head down to the Hilton Hawaiian Village. They usually have a pretty awesome sale, but you take your chances on what’s still left to sell. Have a great Week. Hit me up if you need any more info or advice on Pro Bowl week gear, where to go, what to wear, where to park and any other question you may have. See you on the Streetz of the HI this week!
